Preserved Dried Flowers Care Guide: Maintaining Lasting Beauty
Why are they so popular?
Looking for flowers that never wilt? Dried preserved flowers are here to save the day! These beauties have gained popularity for a bunch of reasons:
They last and last: Unlike fresh flowers that only stick around for a week or two, preserved flowers can hold their beauty for months, or even years, if you treat them right. Talk about long-lasting floral arrangements!
Easy peasy maintenance: No green thumb? No problem! Preserved flowers require minimal care. No need for water, sunlight, or constant trimming. So you can enjoy the beauty of flowers without the hassle.
Save the planet: These dried preserved flowers are an eco-friendly choice. Without the need for chemicals and preservatives used in the floral industry, they're all about sustainability and reducing waste.
Get creative: With a wide variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, the possibilities are endless! From home décor to weddings, events, and crafts, you can let your creative juices flow and make stunning arrangements.
Allergies, begone! If you're allergic to pollen or fragrances, dried preserved flowers are a great alternative. The drying process often removes or reduces allergens, so you can enjoy beautiful blooms without sneezing up a storm.
Uniquely charming: These dried flowers have a one-of-a-kind look. As they dry, their textures, colors, and shapes subtly change, giving them a rustic, vintage, or bohemian appeal. They'll add a touch of elegance to any space.
In a nutshell, dried preserved flowers are the whole package. They're long-lasting, low maintenance, sustainable, versatile, allergy-friendly, and oh so charming.
Let's address a question we get all the time. Are dried flowers the same as preserved flowers?
Preserved flowers are like a magic trick for your floral arrangements. These natural beauties go through a special preservation process that keeps them fresh and fabulous for way longer than your average bouquet. How? Well, they replace the moisture inside with a fancy glycerin solution. The result? These flowers stay looking just as stunning as the day they were picked, with all their original shape, and texture intact. Talk about a long-lasting love affair! With a little TLC, these preserved flowers can stick around for months or even years.
Whereas dried flowers are natural flowers that have been dried out naturally. As they lose moisture, they shrink and might even change color, giving them a delicate and fragile look. But don't worry, they can stick around for a while if you store them right, even though they might get a bit brittle.
While the terms "preserved" and "dried" may have slight distinctions, they are often used interchangeably in the context of floral arrangements and can be considered as alternative options for long-lasting floral displays. Both preserved and dried flowers offer the advantage of requiring minimal maintenance compared to fresh flowers while providing the beauty of natural blooms. At Dawn Q. Floral Design, we use both preserved and dried flower in our arrangements, as we believe that they can create a beautiful and natural look with added texture and depth.
